I have been going to Brio for more than 10 years. On a recent visit for a birthday lunch, the background music was so loud and old top 40's. It was obnoxious and worst of all was music with the lyrics being sung by the original artist. The food was good as usual but, the longer I sat at the table the more irritated I became with the music. If I want to hear Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen or Hall and Oates, I can go down to any hamburger joint in town.
Brio prides itself as an upscale chain restaurant. Even Olive Garden plays better background music than I listened to that day. I will be going back to Brio in the next few days as a celebration for another family member. I will be curious if the music will be as grating as I experienced during my celebration.
Again, the food is good if a bit overpriced on certain dishes. One member of my party chose the Chicken Milanese. It was two fried chicken patties covered with slices of cheese placed on a pile of spaghetti that was then covered again with red sauce. The conclusion was the dish was tasty but very overpriced and not attractively presented. I had Chicken Pomadoro that was good but, the chicken was hiding under the penne pasta.
I realize the menu is determined by corporate offices and the individual restaurants only serve from a set menu and do not set prices but, there is no place on Brio's website for input from customers. I think patrons of Brio"s should be aware of the food offered, prices charged and atmosphere or lack thereof when dining out.
